Abandon History: Gettysburg: Armored Warfare Is Out

By John Walker on March 28th, 2012.

This is your great grandfather.

I’m all about hybrids. When I’m not in Castle Shotgun’s basement laboratories, attempting to breed rabbits with dragons, I love to investigate games that plunder from multiple genres. But by crikey, I’m daunted by the prospect of a third-person shooter crossed with a real-time strategy. That’s the nature of Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, the latest from Paradox that’s just gone on sale. Fortunately braver men than I, like Jim “Brave” Rossignol, have taken a detailed look at it in the past. And now you can buy it.

Potomac Primed – Gettysburg: Armored Warfare

By Adam Smith on March 23rd, 2012.

You'd hate to see his maxigun

Combining RTS and third-person action isn’t enough for Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, which also chooses to put miniguns into the hands of Confederate and Union forces, and zeppelins in the skies above the battlefields of the American Civil War. I’ve been eager to try out the multiplayer oddity ever since Jim first brought it to my attention but I’d assumed I’d have to wait a lot longer. However, the game, built almost completely by one brave man, will be released for digital download on March 27th for $9.99. That’s so close I can practically smell the gunpowder and moustache wax.

Gettysburg: Armored Warfare Cinemotions

By Adam Smith on January 26th, 2012.

It's like a less hip Williamsburg I think

Jim had a look at 64-player RTS Gettysburg: Armored Warfare last week and now, thanks to a couple of videos of the game that I’ve managed to hunt down, you can pretend to be his eyes by watching bits of the game yourself. The first video dates back to March 2011, at which point the game hadn’t been loudly announced at a convention and therefore didn’t exist in any form, so let’s assume time has been impossibly sundered to put that there. The second is from last week’s Paradox convention and shows the impressive map editor along with some gameplay.

Eyes-On: Gettysburg: Armored Warfare

By Jim Rossignol on January 21st, 2012.


Paradox might have a reputation for being the purveyors of grand and quite serious historically-anchored games, but they are fast becoming the publisher of far less historically fastidious titles. Gettysburg: Armored Warfare‘s premise is for the American Civil War being refought with weapons from the future. The result is a chaotic-looking multiplayer RTS with battlefields that appear futuristic and 19th-century at the same time. We’re talking Civil War gentlemen with large moustaches and mini-guns.

The Paradox Convention Preview Blowout

By Quintin Smith on January 24th, 2011.

CAPITAL LETTERS ARE AMPHETAMINES FOR THE SOUL

Last week I was in New York, eating pizza and inventing all-new comparative metaphors for how cold it was (“colder than Bobby Kotick’s eyes”, “colder than a Game Gear’s battery”, “colder than a handjob from an eel”). Why? Because last week was the yearly Paradox Convention, where journalists are invited to meet a whole bag of developers and look at all of Paradox’s upcoming releases.

In short, we’ve got even more to look forward to in 2011 than we thought. I’ll be going through these at top speed, so put on your protective goggles and we’ll take a look. Do I have to remind you of the boy who once read a succinct article of mine and lost an eye? No? Good.
